Regional ecosystem 12.7.2
Vegetation Management Act class Of concern
Wetlands Not a Wetland
Biodiversity status Of concern
Subregion 5, 10
Estimated extent1 Pre-clearing 800 ha; Remnant 2021 700 ha
Short description Eucalyptus rhombica, Corymbia trachyphloia woodland on jump-ups
Structure code Woodland
Description Eucalyptus rhombica, Corymbia trachyphloia, E. virens, E. apothalassica shrubby woodland. Occurs on crests and slopes of duricrust jump-ups. Not a Wetland. (BVG1M: 12a).
Supplementary description Bean et al. (1998), H35
Protected areas Nour Nour NP
Special values 12.7.2: Habitat for threatened plant species including Eucalyptus virens.
Fire management guidelines SEASON: Late summer to winter. INTENSITY: Low to moderate. INTERVAL: 7-15 years. INTERVAL_MIN: 7. INTERVAL_MAX: 15. STRATEGY: Aim for a burn mosaic of 40-60% over the burn area. A diversity of season and fire intensity is important, as well as spot ignition in cooler or moister periods to encourage mosaics. Late summer burns assist with maintaining control of fire intensity. ISSUES: Fires that are too frequent will eliminate obligate seeding species. Fire frequency should be such as to allow trees to reach maturity and produce viable seed.
Comments 12.7.2: Restricted to western margins of central part of bioregion in the Possum Range area, extending westward into the Brigalow Belt.
